UAS/2nd Skin Armor Clothing is unique- high strength –very very low weight- protects against all elements and can be worn comfortably in desert or arctic conditions.
The benefits of using UAS/2nd Skin Armor systems is a weight reduction of 30% -50% (depending on application), 2 times the strength of the current armor sold today and 10x stronger than steel – WITHOUT A TRAUMA PLATE. Patented processing and inherent strength of yarn leads to ability to produce single layers which meets US fragment protection standards in different weaves, knit, fleece.
Mid and outer layers can be insulated or simply breathable to allow maximum cooling or warmth.
Carriage systems are strong weighing 20% compared to other solutions.
Textile weight burden is eliminated.
Unlike other aramids, UAS/2nd Skin Armor can be water resistant and even hydrophobic.
UAS/2nd Skin Armor is inherently fire resistant. The yarn contains a natural biocide giving resistance to bacterial and fungal problems.
Inherent Anti-Microbial Properties
UAS/2nd Skin Armor textiles have passed Oekotex 100 Level 2 testing which is a test to see if a material is safe to wear next to the skin. However, in field trials of UAS/2nd Skin Armor base layer garments, including socks, the material exhibits biocide / antimicrobial properties that actively inhibit growth of microorganisms including bacteria and fungi that are a cause of many skin / foot health problems. US Navy Cmdr. Carlos Rodriguez, who has led investigations into the infection of soldiers, by common fungal organisms including Mucor and Aspergillus terreus, caught in IED attacks states the infections, “can take days or weeks to positively identify them. Doctors have gotten better at identifying the fungus, but the answer lies in killing or cutting out spores before they infect.” UAS/2nd Skin Armor textiles actively inhibit microbial growth and are safe to wear next to the skin for extended periods of time.
